‘BEST OF BIG ED’ #1: MINI-COURSES IN ARLINGTON
This week we’ll give a tip o’ the hat to Nebraska schools that did something enriching and special this year to add a little meat and spice to the academic stewpot.
Let’s start with St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Arlington, which offered kids a day of mini-courses taught by people from the community. Examples:
Making wind chimes
It took a lot of energy and time to put those workshops together for the kids. It sounded like a lot of fun. What a good example of community involvement that lifts the learning experience above and beyond the same old, same old.
